It’s Friday already and we’re going back to Monaco later tonight. I haven’t had the chance to tell you about what I’ve been doing so I thought I’d try and cram it up in this post :)
First thing I like to do when I’m in London is to go out on the street and just blend in amongst the thousands of people. Oxford street is great for this! Of only 30 seconds of walking I’ve smelled coffee, perfumes, spices, leathers and soaps and heard at least 5 different languages and 7 different types of laughter. What’s not to love?

I didn’t have much time for shopping as we went to visit an up and coming artist in his studio in Brick Lane. Remember I told you we bought two paintings not too long ago of Conor Harrington? Apparently Brad Pitt got a piece from him as well back then. This time we were so lucky to be the first ones to choose from the new collection before anyone had even seen it while the paint was still wet :)
We went for an early dinner at a Peruvian restaurant, Ceviche, which James had read a great review of. We got an excellent service as I think maybe they thought we were food bloggers because of me taking pictures of every dish and James being naturally very curious about everything, while both of us has an unhealthy addiction to tap away on our phones while we eat and chat :P

Yesterday I went for shopping in the area around Oxford Street and in Selfridges for a few hours before a hair appointment with the very talented Artistic Director Daniel at Michael John. I whimped out on the bangs, but I did cut it quite a lot to get some more body and shape. I was prepared to cut it 15 cm, but Daniel didn’t cut more than 10 cm which I am feeling very happy about. Definitely go see him if you need a hair cut when in London! If you’re ever in the need of a blow-dry you should also see him, he gave me the most beautiful head turning controlled mess. This guy knows what he’s doing.. Unfortunately I didn’t get to snap a picture of the result of the blow dry as I went shopping in the windy streets of London again.
For dinner we went for a quick bite to one of my favourite restaurants in London, Nobu, and ordered at least 15 dishes making it a £300 quick bite. Amongst our favourites are spicy salmon and tuna tacos, yellowfin tuna sashimi with jalapenos, wagyu beef sashimi and wagyu beef peruvian style skewers as well as the cheesecake. Yummy!

Today I started the day with an appointment with a famous nutritionist. I took lots of blood tests to see what vitamins and minerals I need more of and to see whether my diet actually fits with the way my body works. She is creating a diet which she wants me to follow for some time before we’ll take new tests. Very exciting, and of course I’ll keep you updated! :)
Now I have to run as I would love some more time in the shops before we leave at 17. I will show you all my purchases once I’m back in Monaco, but until then you can follow me on instagram (bycelina) as I’ve been posting a few previews there ;)
Hope you’re having a lovely day!! xx
